Resource Allocation with Non-deterministic Demands and Profits
Found in: 2013 IEEE 10th International Conference on Mobile Ad-Hoc and Sensor Systems (MASS)
By Nan Hu,Diego Pizzocaro,Matthew P. Johnson,Thomas Laporta,Alun D. Preece
Issue Date:October 2013
pp. 145-153
Support for intelligent and autonomous resource management is one key factor to the success of modern sensor network systems. The limited resources, such as exhaustible battery life, moderate processing ability and finite bandwidth, restrict the system's a...
Agilely Assigning Sensing Assets to Mission Tasks in a Coalition Context
Found in: IEEE Intelligent Systems
By Alun Preece,Tim Norman,Geeth de Mel,Diego Pizzocaro,Murat Sensoy,Tien Pham
Issue Date:January 2013
pp. 57-63
When managing intelligence, surveillance, and reconnaissance (ISR) operations in a coalition context, assigning available sensing assets to mission tasks can be challenging. The authors' approach to ISR asset assignment uses ontologies, allocation algorith...
Sensor-Mission Assignment in Constrained Environments
Found in: IEEE Transactions on Parallel and Distributed Systems
By Matthew P. Johnson, Hosam Rowaihy, Diego Pizzocaro, Amotz Bar-Noy, Stuart Chalmers, Thomas F. La Porta, Alun Preece
Issue Date:November 2010
pp. 1692-1705
When a sensor network is deployed in the field it is typically required to support multiple simultaneous missions, which may start and finish at different times. Schemes that match sensor resources to mission demands thus become necessary. In this paper, w...
Human-machine conversations to support mission-oriented information provision
Found in: Proceedings of the 2nd ACM annual international workshop on Mission-oriented wireless sensor networking (MiSeNet '13)
By Alun Preece, Christos Parizas, Dave Braines, Diego Pizzocaro
Issue Date:October 2013
pp. 43-50
Mission-oriented sensor networks present challenging problems in terms of human-machine collaboration. Human users need to task the network to help them achieve mission objectives, while humans (sometimes the same individuals) are also sources of mission-c...
